Haiti - USA : Congresswoman Wilson urges Biden to suspend deportations to Haiti
Note that in May 2020, Congresswoman Wilson from Florida, presented the Deportation Relief Act https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-30752-haiti-usa-congresswoman-wilson-presents-a-bill-to-stop-the-deportations-to-haiti.html , followed in July of the same year, by the Immigration Enforcement Moratorium Act to put an end to all deportations during the duration of the pandemic.
Frederica S. Wilson recalls "[...] Haiti has faced severe economic and political struggles for years, but the COVID-19 pandemic and developing constitutional and security crises have compounded the island-nation’s exiting problems. Haiti is in no state to be accepting deportation flights and many, if not all, of the migrants who are being sent there pose no national security risk [to USA]," adding "I was heartbroken to hear about the numbers of families and children being sent into these increasingly unstable conditions. While I am grateful for President Biden’s leadership in seeking to end this pandemic and encouraged by his vision on immigration reform, we can and must do better."
Recall that when he came to power US President Biden signed a 100-day moratorium on deportations that were to be limited only to convicted felons and suspected terrorists. However, on January 26, US District Judge Drew Tipton (appointed by Trump), issued an injunction against the Biden moratorium on the basis of a federal contract with the state entered into by the Trump administration that does not bind Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to put an end to Title 42 evictions as confirmed by a recent deportation flight to Port-au-Prince included 72 Haitians including 22 children and a two-month-old baby https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-32984-haiti-usa-ice-defies-jo-biden-and-deports-72-haitians-to-haiti-including-22-children.html despite the ban on February 5 by the Biden administration https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-32961-haiti-flash-the-united-states-suspends-deportation-flights-of-haitians.html
